Yes, *I* am our children's future
Today, I spent 30 minutes trying to get my hair dryer to start working again. (I went to use it this morning and it suddenly wasn't working.) I examined the plug, plugged it back in and out again a few times, hit the red circuit breaker button, left it alone for about 10 minutes then tried it again, turned the lights on and off (why, I'm not sure)--I tried EVERYTHING. I was SO frustrated.
Then I realized that I was holding the hair dryer--but it was my flat iron that was plugged in.
